Ingredients:  
4 boneless chicken breasts
1 bottle marsala wine (NOT the stuff labeled "cooking wine" that you can get in the grocery store...)
1 can chicken broth
1 large yellow onion (2 medium)
1 box mushrooms (sliced)
1/2 tsp ground Cumin
1 cup (give or take) flour
1 bag fresh spinach
Uncle Ben's Long Grain Wild Rice
Olive oil

Directions:
Directions:
Arrange for all roommates or children to be elsewhere.

Begin preparations by serving a round of cocktails being sure to toast to great company. Cue up some music.

Using a heavy pot or pan (with a handle) pound the 4 chicken breasts to a uniform thinness of not more than 1/2 inch. Do this between 2 sheets of saran wrap to control the mess and do it right on the counter top, not a cutting board. Don't wimp out on this... be sure to pound down the thick parts of the breasts using the bottom corner of the pot or pan. The thinner the better.

Get 2 large plates. On one put the flour and mix in the cumin with a fork. Fully flour each breast with the mixture.

Light olive oil in a pan, lightly brown the chicken breasts for no more than 2 minutes per side. You aren't cooking the chicken throughout here, just browning them. Remove the chicken from the pan.

Add a tablespoon or so of chicken broth and saute the onions and mushrooms (add mushrooms a few minutes later). Push the veggies to the side, put the chicken in the pan and add about a half inch of marsala wine. Simmer adding more wine if needed, deglazing the pan as it cooks.

Separately, cook fresh spinach and Uncle Ben's Wild Rice.

Serve onions and spinach over chicken breasts with rice and spinach on the side.
